I have personally used Smart Defrag on many of my personal devices for years. It is nice to have a more graphical interface when defragmenting my hard drives. With the addition of Solid State Drives to my computer inventory, Smart Defrag handles performance improvements on SSDs well. The price tag for a Pro version varies at IOBit’s site.  Sometimes they offer deals as low as $4.99 for a Pro upgrade.
